all around mountain bike for trail riding ($5-600)
So, I've been thinking about getting a new mountain bike for a while now, but can't really decide what to get. I'm probably looking in the $5-600 range, so I know whatever I get will probably have terrible components, but I'm more interested in getting something solid that I can build up over the next few years. I've been thinking about either a Specialized Rockhopper or a Jamis Durango, but haven't settled on anything for sure.
Any opinions? Also, I may have found a dude who can hook me up on the component tip, so any suggestions there would be cool too.
